Structure of the construction industry in the United Kingdom (UK) in 2018, by share per sector

Construction industry structure in the United Kingdom (UK) 2018, by sector share Private housing was the biggest sector within the construction industry. In 2018, it accounted for 22.3 percent of all construction output. By comparison, public housing only made up 3.7 percent of the industry and was the second smallest sector. A look at the construction output index for new private housing shows that output has been increasing following the years of the recession and reached a peak in 2018.
Construction GVA increasing

An increased output also translated into a growing contribution to the gross domestic product (GDP). In 2016, the construction industry had a gross value added of 104.7 billion British pounds. This was the highest value in the recorded time period starting 2006. The overall GDP of the United Kingdom was 1.96 trillion British pounds that same year.

Private housing to continue growth

The private housing sector was forecast to see further growth in 2019 and 2020. In 2019, output was expected to grow by three percent compared to the year before, with an even greater growth rate projected for 2020.
